We see Wicca, New Age philosophies and Neo-paganism carving significant inroads into the very fabric of today's culture. Yet, the most dangerous deception is not in the obvious, but what is cloaked in the unseen.
In this refreshingly honest book and insightful ministry tool, S. A. Tower offers us an insider's view exposing the allure of witchcraft that has charmed its way into our daily lives and unlocks the mystery that has kept many churches bound in fear and diverted from their divine purpose for generations. Armed with this knowledge, she shares the discerning views and expressive hearts of eight friends... all former Witches, each revealing their personal life-changing encounters with God.
From The Craft To Christ will help you identify the deception lurking behind every corner and church pew, ultimately sharing the spiritual truth that sets the captive free!
The book is divided in two parts; the first is a ministry tool aimed at teaching you as well as the Church in much the same way that Paul familiarized himself with the Athenian pagans.
Within these pages, you will find the answers to the most perplexing question Christians have... why would anyone choose to be a Witch? It provides an insider’s view into witchcraft, its practices and perhaps more importantly, identifies what it isn't and examines the Churches’ response in light of a Christ-centered evangelism. Also, included are quotes from those who bear witness by their own accounts described in this book.
In the second part of the book, readers will discover the individual stories of not only my own but these eight former Witches who came from various degrees in the Craft, from high priest and high priestesses with over thirty years involvement, down to the solitary practitioner. Through their own words, these former Witches revisit their early interaction with the Church and the pivotal moment the enemy led them astray. More importantly, it allows the reader to witness the enormous love of God and His redeeming grace exhibited in each of their lives.
Whether teens know it or not, they are faced daily with the devil's influences. Author Steve Russo exposes how many seemingly innocent diversions--often seen as just a means of gaining power--can open the door to everything from New Age religions and the occult to Wicca, Satanism, and more. After identifying the sources of peril, Russo equips readers with the biblical tools needed for combatting the forces of evil and points them to the true Source of power.
